of rag, a web site for historic newspapers. >> we're here with photographer jim wallace, author of "courage of the moment." mr. wallace, why did you select these certain photos if your book? >> guest: these photographs were all taken when i was in chapel hill as a student working for the student newspaper, the daily tarheel. and the civil rights movement at that time was working towards getting a public accommodations law that eventually came apart in 1964. the student newspaper supported the marchers. we had some black students in chapel hill at that time and felt that if they couldn't eat in the same restaurants with all the rest of us, that budget right. and so all of these photographs were taken initially for either the student newspaper or for i served as a string err for some of the -- stringer for some of the local wire services and what not. today in publishing the book one of the purposes was to let some of today's generation who still live in chapel hill and are descendants from the people in photographs know and understand what their parents and grandparents did so th

. i went to see what i could learn about the state of human relations with jim and it -- chimpanzees now whether people were still killing and beating chimpanzees and exposing themselves to other spillovers of simian virus that became hiv. that is true, they are. i heard about sort of a confidential source, i heard about practice of a tribal initiation practice in which involves some rituals that include the eating of chimpanzee arms so people are exposing themselves to the virus chimpanzees carry. an office of the wildlife department in the southeastern corner i saw a poster, an aids awareness poster getting back to your question. french is the colonial language people still speak, a poster in fringe trying to educate people about the dangers, the red diarrhea, what the poster said, practice safe sex, don't exchange needles, and what they say in southeastern cameron is don't eat the apes, don't eat the chimps, don't read the girls. that is aids education. >> thank you for being here. i am dr. sam hancock of emerald planet tv. the transportation system supply chain within 24 hours as

or with a touchdown or something. jim? >> do you think the white house speech writers have ruined presidential eloquence? [laughter] >> uh, that's a good question. i mean, they've had them all along, so there are some people who would argue that some of the best stuff was written by speech writers. there's a question of whether or not eisenhower actually wrote military industrial complex, or was it really malcolm moos who was one of his aides? maybe they've homogenized it. maybe, maybe that's the -- i mean, i still think there's got to be some degree of spontaneity. i think probably to speech writer passed on -- when obama said snowmageddon which was an obvious blend of snow and armageddon which, you know, you can concede, of course, that it probably just popped out of his head. and i think a lot -- but, again, they may have, they sort of dumbed them down to some degree. i think, you know, president obama, actually "the washington post" last summer ran a list of about 20 of his slogans, and they're all just dead fish. i mean, together we win, and -- but they don't have any resonance. and so i
